This three-day executive training is a collaboration of the EUI's School of Transnational Governance and EUI-CIBER. It can be combined with an additional two-day module. Its key target audience are practitioners, policy-makers and public officials at national or EU level who are interested in behavioural responses to policy implementation in order to understand how human behaviour impacts policy delivery and to learn how to use such insights when designing policies. All the topics are designed to demonstrate how recent academic expertise can be applied to policy-making.
Three-day Executive Training Seminar
The three-day spring school consists of policy-relevant lectures, keynotes, and case study modules.
Lectures: Professors of the European University Institute and invited guests teach the essential knowledge that is important for understanding how information from Behavioural Social Sciences can inform policy and policy-making.
Keynotes: A key academic expert and a key practitioner present recent developments in the area of their expertise.
Case Study Modules: Experts describe a policy-relevant case and present insights from research for addressing the question in practice.
Additional two-day Module
The additional two-day module offers a practice-oriented hands-on experience in ‘Designing and Executing an Experiment’. A selection of participants form groups, specify a policy question and design an experiment to address this question. This may be a lab experiment or a field experiment. The experiment is executed with other participants as experimental subjects and the results are presented. This hands-on approach provides the know-how to understand and evaluate policy-relevant experiments that are carried out by third parties.
